A few weeks ago, the hubby and I had to be in Town early, so after our appointment we stopped in at one of American's favorite breakfast houses for a bite to eat. While we were awaiting our order, I was enjoying examining their array of flavored syrups. Doesn't it make breakfast so much more enjoyable to have choices of speciality syrups and toppings for pancakes, waffles or crepes? I felt like a kid in a candy store!
Of course Blueberry Syrup is one of my favorites and I thought, how hard could this be to make! We would love waking up out here at the Ranch and treating ourselves to a special flavored syrup on our pancakes. But not one of those "artificially" flavored ones, I wanted to make a flavored syrup using the real thing. So after a few attempts I accomplished just that! And whether you use frozen berries or fresh berries, this Blueberry Syrup is easy and delicious and requires only 3 ingredients other than water.
Homemade Blueberry Syrup
- 2 cups fresh blueberries, can also use frozen
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 cup + 2 Tablespoons water, divided
- 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1. In a medium saucepan, bring water, sugar, and blueberries to a boil. Stir occasionally.
2. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
3. Combine 2 Tablespoons water and cornstarch in a small jar with lid and shake well. (Mason jar works great)
4. Add water cornstarch mixture to simmering berries
5. Stir continuously as the sauce thickens and the blueberries burst
6. Store in refrigerator up to two weeks.
